Hiking trails running above Hollywood and West Hollywood inspired a setting for our fourth Tom Stone thriller novel. We’re working with a title in mind that we’ve chosen and will mention it soon.
The trail off Mulholland Drive is one thing that fascinates me (Don) about Los Angeles. It’s a mix of urban and forest, even within several miles of downtown. This is part of the Santa Monica Mountains and a setting for a … crime scene. Trails carved into the sides of the hills are quite a contrast to the crowded streets and densely packed neighborhoods of apartments and homes.
Just imagine, hiding in the brush and waiting … patiently … for — well, you’ll have to read the novel which will be out in a few months.
The First 3 Tom Stone Books
In the meantime, get in on the Tom Stone action with the first 3 books in the series:
Check them out online at major outlets and of course on Amazon where you can read free previews.
Check them out also on our Crime Books page.
And we have a short story Tom Stone: A Deadly Path.
If you’re in Los Angeles, take a tour along Mulholland Drive. It’s fascinating as it gives views of the LA Basin to the south and the San Fernando Valley to the north.
I can’t think of another major metro area like LA where urban living clashes so much with the forest and remnants of what was once wild.
But today, there’s another form of wildlife — the people that Detective Tom Stone and his partner Jake Sharpe hunt down.
The first three books are meeting with good reviews and we feel proud of our work so far in Book 4. Again, stay tuned and come back to stay up-to-date on our thriller in-progress.
